That .f jtfllfch an event should call forth comment tajEid create more or Ies excitement through ,^t the country, can no1 be a niatter of sur when it is considered how intimately «©nnectcd are our finances with the inter -v eits of the country. Indeed, the financial it fj^bierp is the one open, the solution of u which depend in a^Feat nea8ure. our hopes ....-of suppressing the rebellion and saving the c-onntry. v Sec. |«pfi enjoye^ tfeerc »tlfidwco of ,t the country, through all there dark times to an extent seldom vouchsafed to any pub lie man occupying a position so delicate and responsible and yet it i«« prob ible that the public have praised and deferred to him wlihout any very clear conception or un derstanding of the merits or demerits of the Astern of finanoe which he has inaugura or stopping to enquire whether any Other might not have been b.'tter, or more .. .'•eocctshisful. It was enough for the people i»!fif»know what appeared on the surfac \, to ki .ow the fact that vast sums of money were Inquired to carry on the most expensive war known to mankind, an that the mon «r was forthcoming when needed.

The papers have been full of spec ulations oud surmises, most of which con taadict themselves, and cannot be true. Whether t! e truth of the matter will ever ,1WinKpire, reinain« to Se seen. It seems to v ua that a careful examination of the debates ^»f'Congress may throw some Itglu on the \i wbject. In both brattches of Congress it will be observed that the policy of Mr. Chase, lias been openly assniled by the I J• o^lesr members in those bodies, such men, ito» Pes«end«n in the Senate, and S» evens in the House. Two of the principal points of difference seem to be in regard to taxation :'»«Od the other the sale of government bonds, the Secretary urging and insisting upon taxation to an amount sufficient to meet the **timBtes, and upon requiring bonds to be i told nt not leas than ptr. Upon the first propos:tion, it will be observed, that a di voct issue was found between the Secretary and Congress, and thi.4 would seem to us, i poor judges aa we may be, to have been the immediate cnu«cof tho retirement of the ^Ooretary, although minor oaases oaorating i: io: intensify this main one.' illoweyer all this rn-iy di.

Now if I could give full details of this campaign it would be too tedious for the reader, as well as the writer. I think it doubtful if ev­ er the pen can give it justice. The regiment has been in one engage ment and several skirmishes, in which she has sustained a loss ot seventy five killed and wounded. The loss of Company F. is as follows. Cyrus S Buckner, killed in action May 15th, Win. Litsey, died cf wounds May Sid, Thomas N Long died of wounds June 3d Daniel Stocker, slightly wounded.
